Togo Had Lost.
.St. Petersburg, Jan. 5. The remark-
ablo allegation that the llrltish fleet
was held in readiness to destroy the
Russian fleet, if the battle of the Sea of

Is made by Admiral Rojcstveuaky in a

with the Japanese, who concentrated
his forces at Wei Hal Wei. in expecta
tion ot receiving an order to annihilate
the Russian fleet, if this, the final ob
ject of Great Britain, was beyond the
power ot the Japanese."
From Admiral Rojestvcnsky'a ac
